New reports on older people's views on how to beat isolation
Two new reports from Connect Hackney

Two new reports from Connect Hackney are aimed at increasing our understanding of how older people in the borough can best keep up social links and friendships.

Community Conversations - Social Connections As We Age draws heavily on the experience of hundreds of Hackney over 50s who took part in a series of focus group discussions organised by local community groups and an online survey.

The second report, Profile of Social Isolation Among Older People in Hackney, pulls together existing research, local statistics – including data from the 2011 census – and insights from local organisations and professionals who work with older people, as well as the views of over 50s themselves.

Funding - Building a Stronger Britain Together
 Building a Stronger Britain Together grant

The Building a Stronger Britain Together grant fund has opened today and will close at 5pm on Friday 16 February 2018.

If you have previously submitted an in-kind application, I have been assured that these applications remain queued and will be reviewed before the new round.

You can read information about the current call for grants, read the guidance document and view the application form here -

Please take note that due to the delay in the launch, this will be a particularly competitive round of funding. To give the best possible chance of success application forms will need to be concise and relevant, with all questions fully and directly answered. Applications should also be linked clearly to the Home Office Counter-Extremism strategy which you can read here -

Please specifically note the eligibility requirement for grants on pg 6 and income guidance on pg 8 of the guidance document.

If you would like to attend a workshop to discuss applications, I can offer two options:

1) An opportunity to look through the new application form as a group and discuss how to ensure your application is aligned to the Counter-Extremism strategy
2) An opportunity to meet with other organisations to discuss a partnership bid (suitable for smaller organisations with lower income)

Please reply to let me know which of the above option(s) you would like to attend and also your availability from the following dates and times:

Tue 30 Jan 10am-12pm
